Our annual set up for the Pops By The Sea always starts off with a company breakfast that we have at a local restaurant, our employees all volunteer their time and this year we had over 35 people attend. A special thank you to Persy’s Place on Main Street in Hyannis for properly fueling us up for the past two years to tackle this big undertaking!
We plan for this event each year and have set crews responsible for previously assigned areas. When we first started many years ago, we were mixed with other volunteers, and the set up took close to all day. We recognized the opportunity to streamline the process by taking complete control of the setup, we are now done in less than 2 hours.
Last year we had to set up in a pouring rain that soaked everyone to the bone. This year we were blessed with overcast skies that actually kept it a bit cooler than it might have been if it had been sunny, so we were actually thankful for that.
Our employees love the event and watch on Sunday. Giving back to our community is part of our Mission statement and is something that we truly like to do.
